Amazing All-Inclusive Resorts in Mexico


It’s Time to Start Planning Your Winter Getaway

Nestled between the glittering blue waters of the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, Mexico draws visitors to its pristine beaches and historic towns with tropical weather and affordable costs. All-inclusive hotels are abundant here, including some boutique-y spots that are a far cry from the mega-resorts you might think of when you think of Cabo and Cancún. Here are some of the best, from coast to coast.

El Dorado, Riviera Maya

If you want some healthy distance from the sunscreen-slicked spring break kids of Cancún, head slightly south to this resort’s gorgeous bungalows, set right on top of the ocean—with transparent swaths of floor—so you can get a massage or tuck into 24-hour room service while gazing at fish lazily paddling about in the aquamarine waters below you.


Casa Velas, Puerto Vallarta

On the Western coast is another adults-only option with enormously popular restaurants and a focus on little luxuries such as a “pillow menu” - not a high-end selection of Andes mints, but rather a selection of pillows, depending on your preference.

Grand Solmar Land’s End, Cabo San Lucas

If when you hear “Mexico,” you hear only “Cabo,” this luxurious spot that truly feels like the end of the earth could be right up your alley. Though not technically 100 percent all-inclusive, if you stay three nights or more you can tack on a $120-per-day dining and drinking budget that covers everything you can think of short of lobster. Then there are the ocean-facing verandas, infinity pools, child care on the premises, and hospitality its fans laud as nothing short of incredible.

Fairmont Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen

If you love food and drinks, rejoice! The Fairmont had you in mind when they designed their “premium appetite” package, which includes unlimited eats and drinks—plus bikes and tennis courts to burn off those calories afterwards, if you feel like it. The cost is reasonable and as of this writing, kids under five stay for free.
